BioFrom childhood, Mick was perceptive of factors that made his community an unhealthy environment -- pollution due to deforestation and coal use, diseases that took countless lives, and an uneven distribution of resources amongst his neighbors. While most of his peers became hopeless, Mick’s circumstances fueled his desire to become a doctor and leader in his community. His vision is to eradicate poverty in Rwanda, help support his family of 11, and fund the education of his younger siblings so they can live out their dreams, too.
Outside the classroom, Mick enjoys playing soccer and is a member of his church choir!
